Workers on Thursday put finishing touches on the capital’s first sky bridge, which will link Norodom Boulevard with National Road 2 heading towards Kandal province’s Takhmao town. Meanchey district Governor Kouch Chamroeun said that the sky bridge would be officially opened on June 24 at a ceremony presided over by Prime Minister Hun Sen. “This bridge will help to ease traffic for people in and out of Phnom Penh,” Kouch Chamroeun said. Construction of the 380-by-14-metre sky bridge began in May 2009, and was set to cost US$6 million. Kouch Chamroeun noted that the city is planning two more sky bridges – one of which, officials said last month, would extend from near the corner of Kampuchea Krom Boulevard and Street 169 to the Boeung Kak lake development site.
